DayPasses and multi-day passes

Para Transpo customers or their companions can purchase a DayPass or multi-day pass for use as regular fare on Para Transpo trips.

IMPORTANT: Day Passes apply to regular fares only and are NOT valid for Para Transpo rural zone fares.

A DayPass can be purchased on a conventional bus or at a ticket machine. A Multi-Day Pass may be purchased at a ticket machine only.

For more information about DayPasses and muli-day passes, visit our Where and how to pay page.

Paying with Presto on Para Transpo

Customers can pay for trips on Para Transpo using a Presto card.

Load your Presto card with a monthly pass or load your e-Purse to pay per ride. Simply present your loaded card to the operator when you board. The operator will tap your card on the smartcard reader located at the front of the vehicle.

Find out more about where to buy a Presto card and how to load it.

Pay with a credit card, debit card or mobile wallet

You can pay with a credit card, debit card or mobile wallet if you are paying a regular Adult fare only. Register your credit card at prestocard.ca to view your transaction history.

Credit card, debit card or mobile wallet cannot be used to pay the fare of another person.

Daily fare capping

When you pay for a trip by debit card, credit card or mobile wallet, your daily charges will automatically be capped at the price of a DayPass ($11.75) if you take multiple urban trips in one day.

Rural fares will not be capped, but will be discounted after the daily cap total of a DayPass has been reached.

For customers who take a mix of urban and rural or all rural trips, $3.80 from every trip fare will count towards the daily cap of $11.75. 

Once the $3.80 portion of a customer’s fares have totalled $11.75, rural fares will only cost $6.30.

For example, a customer takes four urban trips in one day. Their fare charges would look like this:

Tap tip: Make sure to pay with the same credit card or mobile wallet each time you pay a fare to benefit from daily fare capping. Fare capping is not available on a Presto card.
